KraussMaffei: New Prize for Energy Efficiency
BluePower is the concept that bundles our continuing endeavors to promote the development of energy- and resource-efficient production solutions. As part of this effort, KraussMaffei Technologie GmbH, Munich, Germany, has now launched the BluePower Award. The company is inviting entries from all the innovative plastics processors among its customers. The company is looking for new developments that deliver a significant increase in energy- and resource-efficiency. They can be anything from individual applications and processes to complete concepts – and they can come from any area of the plastics processing industry. The company is especially interested in processes that make sustainable use of synergies through intelligent combinations of different technologies, such as injection molding, reaction molding and extrusion. The entries will be evaluated and the winner selected by an independent jury panel made up of high-ranking representatives from science and industry. The winner of the BluePower Award 2010 will be announced on October 28, during the world’s biggest plastics show, the K2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Closing date for entries, which must be in writing, is May 31, 2010.
